Senate Plan to Militarize Border Draws Backlash

Alex Altman has a good look at how the Senate's plan to militarize the border is now sparking a backlash.

"The number of agents stationed there has already quintupled over the past two decades, while spending on enforcement is 15 times higher than in 1986, the last time Congress overhauled U.S. immigration policy...While the push to double the number of border agents has done little to neutralize House Republicans' objections, it has incensed some of the bill's supporters on the left."
